SwitchGlo Pro is a revolutionary onboard glow driver that simply plugs into an RX receiver channel and requires no re-charging or additional batteries. It will accept any voltage input between 4V and 9V. Because of its unique and highly efficient voltage regulation technology, SwitchGlo Pro draws an insignificant 0.4mAh per 1 second of glow time and will not noticeably drain your receiver battery. Total onboard weight is only 25 grams including the pig tail.

“Know when you Glow” with an audible buzzer that can also assist in locating a lost craft. SwitchGlo helps you diagnose starting problems with a single beep when detecting an open circuit, indicating you that your glow plug is spent, and greatly reducing time wasted troubleshooting.

You can program mix SwitchGlo Pro just like any other servo on your craft. SwitchGlo Pro has a 4 switch SIP with a built in servo reverser for Y harnessing and an adjustable 12 or 60 second Auto Shut-Off setting. This allows you to adjust for every possible installation and program mix, from eliminating Helicopter “Hot Starts”, to “Low Throttle Mixes” for Airplane taxiing and final approach, SwitchGlo Pro can do it all.

No more struggling with lost or forgotten hand held ni-starters, broken remote cables, or dead batteries. SwitchGlo Pro is ready to work for you every time you power on your craft!

I have 2 of these, both in use with inverted four stroke glo engines. If your're running an inverted glo engine, this will gurantee good idle and quick transition off idle. I really like not having to use a dedicated ignition battery. While I like knowing the glow plug is being powered, I do find the high pitched tone a bit annoying. That said, it is very good at reminding me to move the throttle up if it will be a while before starting the engine. I wouldn't have an inverted glo engine without a glo driver, and this is the best I've run across.

I'm satisfied with this product.I'm very happy with Amaine Harvey's kind service and very quick delivery is laudable.
The packaging and condition of the product was very good, and if you buy it again, I'll do it at Amain hobbies.
